Street Style: New York City

Wednesday, June 10, 2009
Summer is finally here, and I, being unemployed, have unfortunate amounts of time! So, having the luxury of the greatest city on earth (in my opinion) right next door, I've decided to start a section called Street Style. Here, I will document some of the wonderful styles and trends I see throughout the country & world. And unlike the editorial magazines, I won't be focusing on "what's hot right now," but rather, what sets apart one fashionista from the next. Who knows, I might spot you!

Spotted: Coco and Hyoni

Originally from Korea, both are enjoying their time in NYC as a student (Coco) and for work (Hyoni).

What struck me most about Coco was her awesome white leather fringe messenger. She said she purchased it from Topshop from one of their celebrity driven collections. I also adored her non - Wayfarer sunglasses. Don't get me wrong, I love the sunglasses, but it is refreshing to see something other than them.

And as for Hyoni, I absolutely loved her paisley print dress. She said that it was vintage, leaving me completely jealous. Cinched at the waist with a leather belt and completed with thong sandals, it is obvious she has a strong sense of personal style.

*And as a side, her hair was absolutely stunning; jet black and pin straight in a simple braid.

Spotted: Laura

While rummaging the racks of the Barney's CoOp in Soho, my friend and I encountered yet another lovely with incredible and seemingly effortless personal style. It was her tulip skirt that caught my friend's eye. She very politely told us that it was from American Apparel (Melange Jersey Pocket Skirt, though I believe her skirt is a different material).

We also drooled over her Phillip Lim Men's oversized print top. And though I am not a personal fan of ombre, the shading works perfectly with the print on the shirt without being overwhelming.

And as for that very nifty wooden necklace she's wearing, she said that it was (of course) thrifted. I personally love the clash of shapes between the ovals of the necklace and the funky geometric shapes in the shirt. Simple yet stunning.

I haven't seen the movie yet. But I will, as soon as I have some spare time. But that part in the coctail party where the Finnish talks to the girl is hysteric. Too fun. :D

You should do more of this kind of street style. Very amusing, right on the edge.

Hey, thanks so much for replying to my comment.
The huge favour I wanted to ask is...well I found an amazing pair of shoes but the site wont ship to the UK so I wanted to find someone from the US to buy them for me then send them over. Of course I'd pay the money beforehand like into paypal or something.
Thanks again for following :) x

NOELLE said...
